Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

My husband had a recent shoulder injury related to pulling hard with one arm and pushing down with the other arm. This action created an audible "pop" in his shoulder followed by pain and inability to move his arm freely.

When he arrived home, he had his arm in a sling and unable to move his arm to shoulder level let alone over his head. I created a blend with 3-4 drops Lemongrass essential oil in a tsp of castor oil and placed it over his shoulder. I also added some Balsam Fir initially. He gained comfort and was able to sleep.

We continued to apply mixture several times/day. By day 2, he was using Lemongrass essential oil neat over his shoulder injury. By day 5, he had free range of motion of his arm and went sailing by the end of the week. We are convinced that Lemongrass essential oil was a big help in his recovery.
